Georgia election: will Republicans never learn?

Is Republican leadership stupid, incompetent or slap crazy?  Todd Starnes says yes.
"I’d like to know who in their right mind thought it was a good idea to run eleven Republicans in Georgia’s sixth congressional district race.
"Instead of a decisive victory, Republican Karen Handel is now faced with a summer runoff against Democrat Jon Ossoff.
"It’s as if Republican leadership fell out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down.
"When a political novice gets the most votes in a historically Republican district – there’s a big problem."

Handel on 6th District runoff: "Let's kick a little Ossoff"

. . . "Ossoff received 48 percent of the vote, which is higher than previously predicted. Republican Karen Handel got nearly 20 percent. 
"Karen Handel arrived to a hero's welcome at her election party in Roswell. She was all smiles, but admitted to being a little nervous about the outcome of what she says has been a very competitive race." . . . More.

Georgia Special Election Goes Pretty Much as Predicted

In an overhyped congressional race, the Democrat falls short of a majority, so there will be a runoff.
. . . "Because no candidate reached 50 percent, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff, a former Democratic staffer on Capitol Hill, will face off in June against Karen Handel, a Republican who has served as Georgia’s secretary of state and on several local commissions. Though Ossoff dominated early voting, election-day votes pulled his total down over the course of the evening and kept him shy of an outright win. The headlines will have to wait.

"For months, this race has been cast by activists and pundits as indicative of the road ahead for the current presidential administration, perhaps illustrating whether Donald Trump’s abrasive personality and controversial agenda have already turned off voters. But as the results rolled in on Tuesday evening, it became clear that the GA-06 special election has been perhaps the best example of the national media making nothing into something." . . .
